You know those bedspreads from the 50's and 60's and glass sidetables with lamps built into them? That's kind of the style you'll find at this one-of-a-kind, hotel/bed and breakfast. The building itself is a 3-story warren of sturdy wooden stairs, kitchy pink paint, Bavarian windows, *huge* , no make that *gigantic*, rooms (many with dutch doors), usually with some kind of kitchenette. Views of the sea are quite possible if the fog ever lifts. It's a warm, family-owned hotel at the quiet end of the main cross-street that imparts personality and non-corporate decor. Our room even had a fireplace ...so cozy-romantic! Might not be for everyone...so please go stay at your nondescript business hotel if that's what you want. This is a gettaway hotel...relax, BE with someone... and still have plenty of room for your yoga routine. It's almost like a European B&B except for the genrous square footage. There is no elevator, so ask for a room on-grade if you'd rather not take a flight up. I asked what the room is by the pool and they said it's a meeting room like for smaller gatherings or if you wanted to hold a seminar or church retreat, or even a wedding shower. Bring a multi-plug to charge your laptop or phone. Few power outlets. But hey - the walk-away breakfast is fresh-baked pastry and fruit - DELICIOUS!
